TV Mass for the Homebound

Is someone you love unable to join us at church on Sundays? For the faithful at home or in healthcare settings, the Heart of the Nation Sunday TV Mass brings spiritual comfort and the blessings of joy-filled hope in our Risen Savior. Please invite anyone you know who cannot get out to church to tune in to Sunday Catholic Mass on one of many local channels (view list of channels) or watch online at www.HeartoftheNation.org. Past Sunday Masses are also available as well as many other great Catholic resources online.
For those who can get to church, the TV or online liturgy does not fulfill the Sunday Mass obligation!
